Issues & Ale @ Home:  Climate Change in the Great Lakes Region

Host: Lester Graham - Reporter/Host of The Environment Report

The Great Lakes region is often touted as one of the more climate-resilient places in the U.S., in no small part because of its enviable water resources. But climate change also threatens our water quality, availability, and aging infrastructure by exposing existing vulnerabilities and creating new ones.

Lester Graham of Michigan Radio’s Environment Report was host of the Earth Day discussion on the impact climate change poses for the region and how we can prepare for the future climatologists say we should expect.

Joining Lester on his panel was: 

  • Mike Shriberg, Ph.D., Regional Executive Director of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Regional Center
  • Rebecca Williams, Senior Editor, Michigan Radio, Former host - reporter for The Environment Report.
  • Kelly House, Michigan Environment Watch reporter at Bridge Michigan
